Exactly what every Marvel and movie nerd is asking themselves as they are seeing these new pictures that writer/director James Gunn with the help of USA Today just released from his upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol2 due out May 5th. Is it May 5th yet? The first installment of GOTG grabbed you ass and took you for one hell of ride into space and into a world that we almost did not get to see if it hadn’t done as well as it did.
In the interview with USA Today James Gunn said
“The first movie was successful because we took chances and gave people the unexpected. This movie can only really be what it is, Guardians can only be what they are, if they’re taking a risk. It means giving them a much different movie.”
We all remember how great it was to see the first film and how it took us to a world that not many outside of the comic book world would have been too familiar with. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol1 made sure we would like these characters and want to see them again. They play an integral part in the larger Marvel Universe and just so you know most have already been confirmed for the next Avengers films that are already in production. Though lets not get too ahead of ourselves here because we are discussing Vol2.
Take a look at some of the pictures here where we see Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Drax the Destroyer and below them an epic shot of Yondu, Baby Groot and Rocket Raccoon. Further down we see the man Starlord with Drax and suited up. Now to some movie details! The film takes place just 2 weeks after the events of the first one which makes the gap pretty tiny compared to other films the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol2 opens May 5th which is prime real estate for movies these days. We are very confident that it will surpass all of our expectations and wow us like the first one and continue the overall Marvel Universe story line.
